Mobile Worker Assessments
Managing the Risks of Mobile Workers’
The number of Mobile Workers in the UK is rapidly expanding, no doubt due to our 24 hour culture and the rise of new technologies. Employers have a duty of care to consider the safety of all their employees, including those working on-site and those working off-site, and this includes Mobile Workers’.
Do you provide Mobile Worker Assessments
Mobile workers are exposed to additional risks over and above those of general office workers. Mobile workers often have to cope with working on their own, deal with possible threats such as security issues and be able to manage their workload independently. In certain cases Mobile Workers are also Home Workers and an employer needs to show they have considered all the safety aspects.
What does a Mobile Worker Assessment involve
If you have Mobile Workers than there are a number of different regulations you have to comply with. You need to show that you have considered all aspects of their safety to demonstrate the risks have been dealt with effectively. These risks can include
- DSE Regulations
- Manual Handling Regulations
- COSHH Regulations
- Lone Working
- Home Working
- First Aid
- Accident Reporting
